About Renae Farrah

Traveled a good deal growing up and loved the carribbean- St. Barts is my favorite island but flying there is a pain. Thats why I fell in love with this home. Great vistas, blue, blue water and no need to leave the country to get there. I spent my college years in U of M and Philadelphia and 15 years in western Pennsylvania where sunshine was sparce. Give me the sun and water and I am a happy person!

My college training was in Nursing and I have had additional careers as a real estate appraiser, real estate broker, and graphic designer for my husband's sign business. We believe that customer service is number one and we do our best to deliver to you a vacation that is perfect. I hate being nickel and dimed on a vacation so our price is turn key. Because home is on an island, we try to provide you will all the fun toys so you dont have to waste time buying stuff - instead you can just play and have fun on your vacation!

Renae Farrah purchased this house in 2003

Why Renae Farrah chose Anna Maria

I love having my whole fam damily together but space is essential to our family as we are all control nuts. This home is spread out so no one is on top of each other and each person can retreat to their private pod for quiet time. Being together on this property is a choice because private space is abundant!

What makes this house unique

Something to do for every age from card games on the Happy Hour Deck , hotubbing, swimming, fishing, snorkeling kayaking, paddleboarding, basketball, pingpong and volleyball is all offered on the premises. Boat to many boater friendly restuarants for lunch or dinner or throw a steak on the grill- or order our catering service or grocery delivery service . This vacation is all about fun and function. High speed Wifi allows you to sit on the beach and do office work or just surf, watch your favorite movie or team sport by ordering via TEXT. Special needs? - no problem - just ask, after all it is ' YOUR' vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

By DENNIS ANDERSON (obx, nc)

this house was so awesome!! it came with everything you could possibly need or want!!! boat,kayaks,you name it..the island is so beautiful and the island is far enough away ..but yet just close enough to everything or anything you would want to do... we loved this house and island and believe this is by far the best place we have ever stayed... the rental agents are great and johnny at crabbys oyster bar was the best... there is a sandbar right out front the house that seems to be the hot spot for locals...it was great to wake up on the water and see all the boats hanging out all around the sandbar...this house is great for anyone, families,friends,etc..very kid friendly..nice little beach outfront for the kids to play in the shallow water...we will definately stay here again and again!!! LOVED IT... and every night the 7 little raccoons came to see us and get goodies from us... the kids loved feeding them from the deck..

Great time.

  • 4 of 5

Children and grandchildren are still talking about the great time we had. A few maintainance problems but it did not effect our stay. Paddle boards and kayaks were a hit. The sand bar was a daily walk. Visited Long Boat Key a few times also. Water,sand, shells, hermit crabs, and sun, what else do you need. Thanks for the great time.

What a great place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great house, amazing views and very relaxing. We spent a week with 8 adults ages 30 to 73 and a 2 year old and everyone enjoyed them selves. Sunsets are amazing and the home is very comfortable. John the rental manager was very helpful and responded to our every need and checked on us frequently. We look forward to a return visit next year.

Best Place on Earth!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is AMAZING!!!! Sooooo much better in person ~ I hardly thought it was possible. The views are AMAZING! The hospitality was even better. Renae was always so quick to answer emails & reassurance prior to arrival. Johnny was great and just a phone call away if need be. The movie of our journey was a VERY special surprise. Now the kids really believe they are "movie stars"!

Our 2 families enjoyed every sq. inch of the property for the entire week. We left the house 1 day to enjoy Anna Maria Island & (get more supplies). It's true - the drinks do go down good and quick.

The best decision we made was to have the house fully stocked with all groceries for the week. We didn't have to worry about a thing - especially when we first arrived. Worth every penny!!! Thank you Amanda!

There was so much room for everyone. All of the rooms had everything we needed. The kitchen is perfect - fully stocked with all the necessities & then some. The kids were so busy - we hardly saw them during the day. We rented 2 paddle boards & bean bag toss for the week. The kids also kayaked & fished every day. Even enjoyed fish tacos one evening with the fish caught off the back dock.

The water was still a little cold in March..... BUT we live in MN, so anything is better than snow. Another great feature is the community dock on the back of the house. It was really great to fish there - especially on those windy days. Saw several dolphins each day from both docks. Incredible!!

I have rented homes through homeaway.com in several parts of Florida, St. Thomas, & Key West. This is our favorite by far........ would LOVE to come back year after year! Thanks so much for everything ~

Beautiful fun secluded place.

  • 5 of 5

My two sister's and our families stayed at the beach house with our Mother to surprise her for her 70th birthday. We had a range of ages from an infant to grade schoolers to teenagers, adults and our Mom. Everyone had a wonderful time. It was a perfect getaway. There was always something for everyone to do and plenty of room and privacy, when that was desired. My Mother, who lives in Sarasota, still calls me giggling about this or that from that weekend and can't stop thanking me for finding this place. Go figure, I'm from Chicago and my Mom and sisters are from Sarasota and I found the perfect place to spend our Mom's birthday less than an hours drive from her house. It was so much fun and clean and equipped with everything one would need and very nicely decorated. I put some pics on facebook and have many friends inquire about the place. Had a great time, don't think we'll ever be able to top this little vacation! Thanks again, Renae.

Family reunion and celebration

  • 5 of 5

When looking on the internet for a beach house big enough to hold our extended family to celebrate my eight year old son's 5 year cancer free celebration, we saw the Extreme Polynesian beach house. We thought this is too good to be real! We immediately rented the house for our family get together. It was a dream come true! A private beach, a sand bar for the kids to play out on and catch little ocean creatures in sand pails, fishing off the boat dock and private bedrooms and bathrooms for each family! At night, the main kitchen/familyroom was big enough for everyone to dance, play games and watch movies. The dining area off the kitchen was great for our late night card games. We have rented many beach houses but this definitely tops them all. We can't wait to have another family vacation at the Extreme Polynesian beach house. As my son said during our celebration for him, "This is the most awesome place on earth!"

Awesome waterfront views and plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in April and had the best vacation ever. Our days started with fresh oranges from the orchard used to make our mimosa's, then we used the kayaks provided and kayaked over to the Gulf of Mexico. Renae was extremely helpful and provided us with lots of information as to where to go and what to do and she was more than willing to help us at any time. Upon our arrival our rental manager helped us with our groceries and luggage and showed us around the waters and home. The home is very tropical and large with plenty of room and water views from everywhere. I especially enjoyed the Happy Hour Deck where we watched beautiful sunsets and cooked out. The kids played on the private basketball court and collected shells on the sandbar in front of the home. The best part was the proximity of the home to retaurants and other beaches. We we didnt boat out for dinner, we cooked in the gourmet kitchen and large dining room . We will definitely be returning . Thanks for all the great photos and memories we made here. Great DSL and we loved having 3 refridgerators- plenty of room for cold drinks all the time
